Greetings - Printing to Trotec from Rhino creates a Trotec ascii .tsf file - which is human-readable.
Depending on the data to be processed, this file will be a bitmap for engraving or vector coordinates for cutting or a combination of both.
The problem I’m seeing is printing vectors from Rhino to Trotec results in a bitmap .tsf file - no vector
coordinates for cutting. Don’t need to actually fire up the machine and try cutting - just view the .tsf file in a text reader - all bitmap. I’ve discussed the problem with Trotec support.
Print the vector (or combo) job to Rhino PDF and drag the PDF file into CorelDraw. Check that vectors are set to hairline and correct RGB colors then print to Trotec from CorelDraw. This produces a viable Trotec .tsf file.
I find that Rhino PDF doesn’t allow for a custom window less than 1.0 x 1.0 inches for small parts but
this can be resolved when sending the PDF job from CorelDraw to Trotec Job Control - the custom window can be sized as desired.
Trotec Job Control 11
4K monitor - for which Trotec’s JC GUI is not entirely compatible.
